HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 c1457
71. Mr. WILES

asked the Prime Minister if he is now able to state when the Standing Arbitration Tribunal for dealing with questions arising as to remuneration and other matters between the Postmaster-General and other Government Departments and their Civil employés will be set up; and, if so, will he further state what will be the constitution of the tribunal?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Stockport. I am sending him a copy.

72. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Prime Minister if the Government can yet announce their proposals with reference to the increased separation allowance to be paid to soldiers' dependants; and if it will be paid before Christmas, and if Ireland is included?

90. Mr. WING

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of his promise to the Member for Houghton-le-Spring that increased allowances to soldiers' dependants were under the consideration of the late Government, he will say if such increase is being considered by the present Government, and when such increased allowances are likely to commence?


I have been asked to reply to these questions. I have nothing to add to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer yesterday.


Can the hon. Member say whether the rule which is applied in England will also apply to Ireland?
